    Hub Axle problem, why is this turning?

    Check out this picture, why is this turning when I try and remove the rear thru axle on my 2018 Giant Reign? I have to secure the spot where the arrow is pointing to remove the axle.

    I don't notice anything else weird about the hub, this just started happening the last time I tried to take the wheel off.

    With the wheel out, make sure the silver locknut is tight. These hubs are re-branded all over the place and are notorious for coming loose. If that's not it, check that your axle isn't bent or there's a burr somewhere where the axle is hanging up

    Cheers

    The locknut needs to be tight against the cone, you need 2 cone wrenches to lock them together.
    I brake for stinkbugs
